With a sequel arriving in May, 2013, and a clamour of speculation over Benedict Cumberbatch's villain role, Star Trek is once again exerting its massive gravitational pull on film fans.

This year's Sci-fi-london international festival of science fiction and fantastic film - on from May 1 to 7 - will also be switching to warp speed for some Star Trek treats including a Q&A with a special guest.

The event will screen two documentaries that offer a critical appraisal and a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the long-running franchise.

Trek Nation follows creator Gene Roddenberry's son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father's singular vision for the future.

Through interviews with fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane, and many notable Star Trek alums, Trek Nation chronicles a son's journey to discover his father's work which, in itself, shaped the science-fiction genre.
